Blazing row between councillor and candidate revealed on Twitter
A BLAZING row between a Wirral councillor and a Labour candidate has erupted on social networking site Twitter.
The bust-up between Tory councillor Chris Blakeley and local actress Pauline Daniels came in the wake of the borough’s by-elections last night.
Ms Daniels missed out on a seat in the town hall for Leasowe and Moreton East to former ward councillor Ian Lewis.
However it's clear no love has been lost between Ms Daniels and Cllr Blakeley as they engaged in a heated online row.
Following the comedienne’s personal thank-you to her election agent Daniel Hughes, Cllr Blakeley said the final result was down to Ian Lewis being “too strong a person with so many positive thing to say.”
But Ms Daniels tweeted back that Cllr Lewis “denied his own party,” saying: “He's like Marmite there's a lot of hatred for him, some you win.”
Defending his political colleague, Cllr Blakeley jumped in: “Hatred? look in the mirror. More people know and like him than ever you would know.”
Ms Daniels then hit back, referring to a Christmas light switch-on she once took part in in Moreton: “You're a nasty little man never said that when I switched on your lights and never charged appearance money as others would.”
Councillor Blakeley replied: “Yeh we all make mistakes...One I will never make again, you are well suited to Wirral Labour.”
Ms Daniels warned him: “Sadly you don't have the b***** to say that to my face - hope you never need anyone in my business.”
